El paisaje en la planificación y gestión de los puertos deportivos en Andalucía

Acaban de publicarnos un artículo en la Revista de Obras Públicas sobre el paisaje en la planificación y gestión de los puertos deportivos en Andalucía. La Revista de Obras Públicas, decana de la prensa española no diaria y editada por el Colegio de Ingenieros de Caminos, Canales y Puertos de España, se adentra en un mundo más amplio que el de las revistas puramente profesionales, atendiendo al mundo de la ciencia y de la tecnología; a la economía o a la política de infraestructuras; a las enseñanzas técnicas o a la historia de la ingeniería, dedicando preferente atención dentro de ellas a la investigación y a la innovación en el sector. Tal ha sido su línea editorial desde su fundación en 1853, y su objetivo sigue siendo mantener esa línea de reflexión sobre el oficio.

Os dejo a continuación la referencia, el resumen y el enlace al artículo. Espero que os sea de interés. El enlace al artículo es el siguiente: http://ropdigital.ciccp.es/detalle_articulo.php?registro=19994&anio=2017&numero_revista=3593

 

RESUMEN:

El paisaje constituye un concepto complejo que trata de las relaciones entre las personas y su entorno. El concepto engloba, por tanto, muchas perspectivas y por ello, cada área del conocimiento lo aborda de forma diferente. Los puertos son elementos singulares dentro del paisaje, con gran atractivo y de gran ornamento desde tiempos antiguos y su posición en el litoral representa una base espléndida para observar el paisaje. En este sentido, este artículo introduce el paisaje en los puertos deportivos de Andalucía —partiendo de sus particularidades de función y escala con respecto a otras instalaciones portuarias— evidenciando su influencia en su planificación y gestión. Basándose en el concepto de paisaje y tras un análisis de la literatura y documentos existentes, se plantean en el artículo los diversos elementos que se deben considerar en cada una de las escalas de aproximación. Este planteamiento sistematizado constituye una herramienta que permite una mejor comprensión y gestión del paisaje en este tipo de instalaciones, considerando los diferentes elementos que se interrelacionan en el entorno natural y social.

Palabras clave:

Paisaje, puerto deportivo, planificación, gestión

ABSTRACT:

The landscape is a complex concept that affects the relation between people and their environment. The concept of landscaping and setting incorporates many perspectives and each area of knowledge is subsequently tackled in a different manner. Ports are unique areas within the landscape that have held great attraction and embellishment since ancient times and their setting on the coastline serves as a perfect location to observe the landscape. This article considers the aspect of landscape at marinas in Andalucia – on the basis of their function and scale with respect to other harbour works- and where this is seen to have a clear influence over their planning and administration. On establishing the concept of landscape and following an analysis of available literature and documents, the authors consider the different elements that should be taken into account in each scale of approach. This systematic approach serves to obtain a greater understanding and administration of the concept of landscape in these types of installation, when considering all the different elements interlinking the natural and social environments.

Key words:

Landscape, marina, planning, management

Developing learning manuals for European construction project managers

Maturity model in management competences
Maturity model in management competences (Milosevic et al, 2007)

There is a need for supplementary learning and training in management applied to the construction industry, as many authors, professionals and organisations have already recognised. The assessment and up-keeping of management competencies are essential for the performance of individuals and organisations that work in the construction sector. Most of the universities syllabuses focus in traditional construction courses that do not deal with the most relevant features of management for engineers and architects in the construction industry; these graduate courses mainly cover an assortment of design-oriented issues, leaving no room for managerial topics. Thus, management is a crucial issue for professionals in the construction sector; currently, an engineer or an architect must have some knowledge of every managerial issue valuable in construction. Taking the complete life cycle of the infrastructure as a reference, a holistic attitude must be pursued. Therefore, a model for management and administration in construction is proposed in this paper. This model displays two dimensions: life cycle (per phase) and organisational level. The former is linked to time through the four well-known phases of the construction process: feasibility, design, construction and operation. The latter considers four organisational levels that can be found in the construction sector: life cycle, company, project (or team) and individual. In order to test the appropriateness and usefulness of the model, two applications are implemented. The first one is the analysis of the outputs of a European project which goal was to produce seven basic books for construction managers; this project was developed by several universities and professional associations of the European Union. The second one is the design of a new syllabus in civil engineering (M.Sc. degree) with a specialisation of 30 ECTS; right now, this proposal is being discussed in the School of Civil Engineering at the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia (Spain) to get it implemented in 2010 due to the new academic scenario according to the Bologna process. The model presented in this paper offers an innovative framework for orientation to organisations, professionals and academicians in order to improve the knowledge of management and administration in the construction industry.
